Bellwether's Blog on life and money
WZID's Art Jam Bridge Fest was held in Manchester this past Saturday, where people from the community came out to enjoy the arts and raise money to fight the heroin/opioid crisis. As a sponsor of the event, Bellwether Community Credit Union would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of you who joined us in making the Art Jam Bridge Fest a success, whether that be by making a donation to Child and Family Services of NH or visiting our booth at the event. All of us at Bellwether are so appreciative of the strong support we received and had a blast chatting with everyone at the Art Jam. It was a fun-filled day of music, art, dance, food, games and more that, most importantly, raised money for a great cause. We would also like to give a big thank you to WZID for putting on such a wonderful event.
Breaking Up With Brand Names
Picture this scenario: you're steering your shopping cart through the sliding doors of the supermarket, shopping list in hand.
As you walk the aisles, there's a strategy you can use to save an average of 33% on your entire purchase. It doesn't require any coupon cutting or signing up for rewards cards. And the best part? You still get every single item on your list. The secret? Buying private-label products instead of brand-name products.Read More
Grab a handful of change and help Child and Family Services of New Hampshire change lives this Saturday, September 23.
Music, food trucks, dance teams and art displays by over 50 artists—it’s all happening this Saturday! Bellwether Community Credit Union is sponsoring WZID’s Art Jam Bridge Fest to raise money and awareness for the fight against the heroin/opioid crisis.
Living On Your Own And "Bill Time"
Living on your own for the first time can be empowering. It means having independence and all the things that come with it.
Some of those things - like not having to share a bathroom - are wonderful. Others - like killing spiders yourself - are not so fun. And leading the pack in the not-so-fun category: bills.
Bellwether is proud to be a sponsor of WZID’s Art Jam Bridge Fest being held on Saturday, September 23rd! The event is being held from 10am to 3pm on the Bridge Street Bridge in Manchester and is sure to be a fun day featuring art displays, music, dance teams, and more as people from the community come together to raise money for the fight against the heroin/opioid crisis. Tickets for the event are $10 each, and can be purchased here www.ArtJamBridgeFest.com.
Bellwether will be sharing a booth with Child and Family Services of NH (CFSNH) at the event and will be accepting donations to help them provide support to families affected by the opioid crisis. Bring your spare change (even foreign coins) to the event and donate them at our booth. The foreign coins will be added to our magnetic butterfly display, and all funds raised will be donated to CFSNH. Bellwether will also have a photo booth display for families to take pictures together. For more information on Bellwether’s participation in this event, please visit www.BCCU.org/changinglives.
The Art Jam Bridge Fest is a great chance for parents to bring their kids out for a fun day surrounded by the arts while also serving as a way to explain the dangers of the opioid crisis. The event is a fantastic learning opportunity for kids who most likely don’t understand the severity of this epidemic, and could also help spark an interest in the arts.
The Art Jam Bridge Fest will feature over 50 artists showcasing their creativity, 15 live bands, and five dance teams. Eric Escobar will appear as the featured artist, along with a 6ft x 40ft graffiti art mural. The schedule for the day includes an interactive community wall, dozens of vendors and food trucks, a kid’s area, and Angels of Addictions Healing Through Art with Ann Marie Zanfagna. New Hampshire students will also be coming together to set the Guinness World Record for largest number of paper-crafted butterflies, which will be displayed on the Butterflies of Hope Wall at the corner of Bridge Street and Elm Street.
